Disneyland sets New 2012 Half-Marathon Course

Earlier this week, runDisney made another exciting announcement, this time revealing the course for the Disneyland Half Marathon to be held on September 2, 2012. Although the majority of the course remains unchanged from years previous, there is an exciting new turn early on that appears to have runners going through the new Cars Land area in Disney California Adventure Park. Unfortunately however, it does appear that there is less running in Disneyland in order to compensate for the added distance through California Adventure.

Here are the two course maps for comparison:

Other highlights for the 2012 course will include running through Angel Stadium, as well as starting and finishing by the Disneyland Hotel and the Downtown Disney district. Will you be running the Disneyland Half Marathon this year? What do you think of the course changes for this year?

    This will actually be my first 1/2 marathon! I’ve really looking forward to head out west and get to Disneyland for the first time since I was like 3, and that was 29 years ago! Anyway, I’ll also be going for my coast-to-coast medal as I’ve signed up for the Wine and Dine 1/2 Marathon in Florida. Yeah, that’s right. I’ve signed up for two 1/2 marathons before actually running one. Wish me luck! :-)

      Hey Dave! I was the same way!! I signed up for DL half the day before I ran my very first half marathon at WDW in January! And then signed up for Princess as well as ToT and wine and dine half marathon! Once you do Disney run, you’ll get addicted!! Good luck and I’ll see you on the west coast!!

        It is addictive! This will be my 5th 1/2 marathon. Signed up for TOT and then Key West 1/2 in January 2013!! More than likely something in between. It all started as a 45th birthday goal, and here we are 3 years later…. See you at the finish line!!

    This will be my first 1/2. I am actually training on a treadmill in Afghanistan. I am already super nervous, but excited to run at Disney.
